About

WHO WE ARE

Originally founded in 2013, CrossFit Marbella was one of the first CrossFit gyms to launch in Spain. Constantly expanding and developing, CrossFit Marbella has now doubled in size to over 550m2, and now offers two fitness programs across two spaces, CrossFit and BeachFit. We pride ourselves on our ‘next level’ coaching, our world renowned welcoming community of staff and members, as well as a super clean and well equipped facility.

Every day, whether it be through personal training or group class our coaches bring their all to help our members reach their goals. Our programs are tailored to help our members improve their fitness levels, how they feel about themselves and therefore to live a healthier and happier life outside of the gym. We tailor to all fitness levels and capabilities.

Each year we are visited by travelling CrossFitters and fitness enthusiasts from all over the world who are visiting Marbella. We love nothing more than to have visitors join us for our classes or personal training, and to meet and train alongside our members.

Inside our facility we have also partnered up with local businesses Physio Fitness complete with services of physiotherapy, massage and pre/rehab treatments.

Please feel free to browse around our website to find out more about how we can help you. When you’re done please send us an email when you are ready to try your free class, or to book a no sweat intro. We look forward to hearing from you!

Just show up, we have the rest covered.

Richard Ashton

Richard Ashton

Our head coach and box owner Rich, aka “Ricardo”, with a whole range of quirky attributes can easily be described as super friendly with a positive attitude! With many years of experience in the fitness industry, L2 certified and Precision Nutrition qualified, he is extremely passionate about his box. Since opening CFM’s doors back in 2013, he is continually building his knowledge and developing a solid platform for which the coaches and members can thrive. Always there to help, to talk to or crack a joke… you can count on him. Except if its about hair-care… you probably don’t want any advice from him. Ricardo lives in a world where there are no problems…only solutions!

Adrienne Hajkó

Our most recent addition is our smiling beauty Adri, all the way from Hungary. Driven, energetic and focused on her desire to learn…whether developing herself as an athlete or coaching her classes, she has the patience of a saint. Adri thrives on watching people achieve their goals ensuring every individual is moving safely and feeing comfortable, all while making sure they are enjoying every single minute! A qualified personal trainer, L2 Certified and former pro basketball player…give this plant-based power house a ball or a barbell and she’ll give you a run for your money… always with a big smile!

Pedro Kenneth Lonnblad

Pedro Kenneth Lönnblad

Pedrito is not only one of our most valued L2 Certified CrossFit coaches, but our in-house Physiotherapist too. Having him in our team is a huge asset to our community of members, and they just can’t get enough of him! Able to conduct a class in English, Spanish and Swedish, he lovingly devotes time and energy trying to help improve everybody while using an abundance of cues… a guarantee you will never leave a class without learning something new. Not to mention his awesome dancing skills…so don’t be surprised if you catch him dancing around in the box with a cup of coffee in one hand and pvc pipe in the other! That’s just the way he rolls.

Lukas Högberg

You might know this guy as one of the fittest men on the planet, or you might know him as the guy with some of the craziest Instagram posts on the planet… probably both!
Having recently moved to Marbella from his native Sweden, you’ll find him training in the box, or you’ll find him running the mountain trails of Marbella with dog Walter!
Lukas’ accolades in the sport of CrossFit are matched by only a few. He’s a 5x times CrossFit Games competitor, finishing 3rd place in 2018. Having made the move to Marbella we’re hoping it can push him to even bigger and better things in the near future.
We’re very proud to have him represent CrossFit Marbella as an athlete and excited to have him join us as a coach. If you haven’t checked out one of his classes yet then make sure you do sometime soon!

I originally heard about the world of CrossFit from my brother who thought I might enjoy it. Up until that point, my approach to fitness and nutrition had simply been what I’d picked up from magazines and internet but there was no real strategy behind any of it. I started training at CrossFit Marbella just over 3 years ago and it’s simply been the best decision I’ve made. CFM has given me a solid structure and variation to my fitness journey with unrivalled group support and a great feeling of community. My experience at CFM continues to be outstanding. The culture at CrossFit Marbella is amazing and has been created by the top class coaches and community of welcoming members. It is one of support and encouragement. From my early days, the CFM coaches provided high quality programming and did so politely
